You might be a “useful idiot” if…

  The phrase “useful idiot” was probably born as a political pejorative aimed at describing “people perceived as propagandists for a cause whose goals they are not fully aware of, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the … Continue reading

“I don’t read the Bible very much, and I really don’t want to.”
